Yes it is. You can contact the courthouse is the jurisdiction where he lived before his death.His Will and all the documentation relating to it's probate are in a court file that is a matter of public record. Anyone can access it. It will be stored in the archives now so you will need the clerk of the courthouse to either requisition it for you or tell you how to get it. The information you need is your uncle's full name and the date of death. You will be charged a small fee for photocopying but that is all.
